VALENTINE
Continued from page 1
ven basket filled with champagne,
chocolate kisses, heart-shaped bal-
loons, hot fudge sauce, red hots,
and two pairs of edible underwear.
The basket costs $47.50.
While this a popular seller, only
a few University students order the
"sinful" gift because "students may
not know each other well enough to
be comfortable giving that basket,"
said Beth Kaplan, co-owner of Bas-
ket Ovations.
LSA senior Mary Heekin agreed
with Kaplan. "It sounds like you get
more for your money with the bas-
ket, but it depends on who you are
sending it to. Personally I would
rather get the roses."
Not everyone is caught up in the
St. Valentine's legacy, however.
Suzanne Duryea, first-year Rack-
ham graduate student, said she would
rather not receive a bouquet because,
"I am allergic to flowers." She said
she didn't send any card or gifts this
year because Valentine'sDay is too
commercialized.
Even so, Duryea added she might
send a dozen roses "if I were feeling
really spontaneous."

Sandi Sassack, a first-year nursing student, peddles some flowers to Eric Tenfelde, an LSA sophomore,
at the Michigan Union.

Ann Arbor Staff Sergeant
Thomas Caldwell said both students
know each other and "it is fair to say
that the suspect might be the same
in both cases."
But Caldwell added police are1
puzzled by the West Quad student's
report. "There were no footprints on
the window ledge, no evidence of en-
try whatsoever," he said. "We don't
know how he could of got in any
other way but it is possible."
Caldwell also said police found
no evidence to support the student's

description of the rape. "The room
was very small and there was no
indication of a struggle," he said.
"Everything was in order, there were
items balanced on each other that
appeared undisturbed."
Caldwell added the woman has

support Farrakhan's message with-
out public approval.
"While this man certainly has a
right to speak, I don't think it is
right for MSU or any other univer-
sity to promote hatred," Frank said.
Several members did not agree
with the terms of the resolution, and
thought it might set its own danger-
ous precedent. LSA sophomore Jen-
nifer Van Valey voted against the
resolution, on the grounds that MSU
or any other university should not
begin to make moral judgements
concerning campus speakers.
"I voted against this motion not
because I support what Farrakhan
says about the Jewish people," Van

Valey was careful to point out. "I
think we should condemn what he
says as anti-semitic, but we should
never give a university the power to
make moral decisions about who
should and shouldn't be allowed to
express opinions at an institution of
learning."
Another MSA member, Rackham
representative Corey Dolgon, ques-
tioned the voting records of MSA
members in the past on other dis-
crimination issues.
"I can't and won't defend Far-
rakhan," the Rackham representative
said. "I'm just asking why some of
the same people who are so quick to
condemn Farrakhan's remarks refused
to condemn groups like the CCF for
their blatant anti-gay and anti-lesbian
policies."

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Mich. House committee
approves right-to-die bill
LANSING - Terminally ill adults who choose to spend their last
days at home or in a hospice should be able to make one last request-
that when they die medics not try to resuscitate them, officials said yester-
day.
A House committee unanimously passed a narrow version of right-to-
die legislation which addresses non-hospitalized adults who have been di-
agnosed with a fatal illness and are likely to die within six months.
The bill would allow the individual to voluntarily sign a "do not re-
suscitate" order, which also must be signed by the physician. An identifi-
cation bracelet worn by the patient would notify emergency medical ser-
vices other health care workers to respect those wishes.
The terminally ill patient's breathing and heart must have stopped for
the order to mean anything.
Right to Life of Michigan supports the bill although it has opposed
related legislation allowing any individual to fill out a "living will" to
outline the type of medical treatment they want administered if they
become incapacitated.
Bush to propose 'radar net'
WASHINGTON - President Bush may use the four-nation drug
summit to revive the idea - shunned in Latin America - of using U.S.
military forces to cast a "radar net" over Colombia to track cocaine-carry-
ing aircraft, a senior adviser, said yesterday.
Brent Scowcraft, Bush's national security adviser, said the idea was "on
the shelf for the moment" because Colombian officials balked last year at
news reports that the United States was considering a naval "blockade" of
their ports.
Scowcroft said the plan probably would not win approval "in the next
several days" - the summit is tomorrow- but he added that "it's an idea
we think has merit." He said, "I expect it might be discussed" at the
summit.
Another administration official, speaking anonymously, played down
the sensitive subject, calling it "not a significant agenda item."
Hostages taken at gunpoint
from British Columbian bus
Prince George, British Columbia - Three armed men commandeered
a school bus yesterday, taking the driver and up to 18 students hostage,
police said.
Reports of the number of students on the bus ranged from seven tol8.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they spotted a rifle and handgun
on the bus.
The armed men reportedly asked for a getaway car and police said they
had one available.
Police sharp shooters were sent to the scene after the bus was seized,
but no shots were fired by either police or the armed men.
Traffic was cordoned off in the downtown area of this city about 300
miles north of Vancouver, police said.
37 die in Tadzhikistan riots
MOSCOW - Armenians by the hundreds have fled the Tadzhikistan
capital of Dushanbe to escape ethnic rioting that has killed at least 37
people and injured 108, news reports said yesterday.
Soldiers in tanks and armored personnel carriers were reportedly in
control of the central Asian city 1,600 miles from Moscow, but violence
was spreading to the suburbs, said Anatoly Laarenok, a correspondent for
the national newspaper Vozdushny Transport.
"There are tanks guarding key buildings in the center of the city, and
the riots have moved to the suburbs," he said.
Violence broke out in Dushanbe on Monday after rumors spread that
thousands of Armenian refugees - already fleeing ethnic clashes with
Azerbaijanis in the Cauccasus - were being given preference for scarce
new housing.
There is a chronic housing shortage in Dushanbe for the traditionally
largeTadzhik families.
Michigan representatives
vote more conservatively
WASHINGTON, D.C.- A majority of Michigan's 18 House mem-
bers had more conservative voting records in 1989 than the previous year,
but the delegation remains more liberal than most, according to interest-
group ratings.
The liberal Americans for Democratic Action and the American Con-
servative Union released annual studies of congressional voting patterns.
Both organizations said the Senate had edged right last year.
But the ADA said the House also had been sightly more conservative

than in 1989, while the ACU said the House had slipped to the left.
The ADA ratings showed Michigan's House delegation, on average,
supporting the liberal position on 70 percent of the votes. Overall, the
house sided with the ADA on 50 percent.
Ratings were compiled from votes on a broad range of issues, such as
whether to boost the minimum wage, fund the MX missile, impost capi-
tal punishment for terrorism and continue aiding El Salvador's govern-
ment.
